Staff were helpful and area was cleanLots of hidden costs. Minimum insurance purchase amounts and red tape. Payment online is solely for the car rental not for any insurance etc. Staff were great though it’s not their fault.

Drop off was great and they transferred me back to my hotel.Pickup was a mess — I was 60 mins late to pick up my car and they had already given it away. After Expressing my displeasure they finally offered a large tourist van as a replacement and promised to replace it was a small SUV later that day. They never replaced it — even after much follow up — which directly affected the quality of our experience and travel.

when we arrived car was not available. Wanted us to wait 2 hours for delivery. Next they announced additional 28 dollars a day for "mandatory" additional insurance. Went nearby got same car cheaper from Alamo/National no "mandatory" insurance. Never again with Economy.

I booked for one amount and I was charged extra ( a lot) for insurance.

We spent over an hour talking to the front desk with no clear explanation of what’s going on, until she finally told us they never had the car we booked. They gave it to another couple (who was standing beside us the whole time) who had to get to the airport. And that’s fine, but we could have went to a different rental place without wasting an hour watching her sit behind her computer.

The car was comfortableThe people and pickup process were just awful. I made a reservation, but there were no cars. An hour after my reservation, we started the pick up process, and it took over an hour! They gave me paperwork for the wrong car, the service was terrible, and it was a huge waste of tiime

The car itself was perfectly fine. A good working car with no issues.I was quoted a very low rate for rental but the insurance to cover the car was over four times the rental rate. I wasn't able to rent without the insurance even though it should be covered through the credit card used to pay for it.

Car hire excess insurance in Tamarindo

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Tamarindo car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Tamarindo.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Tamarindo car rental.
